Rubio: Dem Debate Was Just ‘Who Was Going to Give Away the Most Free Stuff’

Marco RubioRepublican presidential candidate Marco Rubio was not a fan of Tuesday’s Democratic debate, telling Fox & Friends the following morning that the candidates’ ideas were outdated and stale.

Rubio said the biggest threat to Hillary Clinton‘s candidacy was her “outdated ideas… if you watched that debate last night it looked like something from the early ’80s. It was basically a liberal vs. liberal debate about who was going to give away the most free stuff.”

“Free college education, free college education for people illegally in this country, free health care, free everything,” he continued. “Their answer to every problem in America is a government program and a tax increase. That’s all they prescribe time and time again.”

“This is stuff from the ’80s, the mid ’80s, and we’re back there,” Rubio concluded. “As I said before the debate, it became exactly what I predicted it would be: a race to the left to see who’d be the most radically liberal, the most big government. And that’s what this whole primary is going to be for the Democratic side.”
